My Story 0 Appreciate this

I was diagnosed June 9 2011 with RRMS. I'm blessed with a loving, supportive husband, and 3 absolutely adorable pets. I love riding horses and volunteering at a therapeutic riding center for persons with physical and mental disabilities. My pets, volunteering and riding are all therapeutic!

Once, sometimes twice, a week I volunteer at a therapeutic riding center. I became a "vegequarian" and lost 30 pounds and have adapted to my new "food therapy". I'd like to take up strength training.
